Is anyone else ready for Fall? I don't know what has gotten into me this year but I am so ready for apples, pumpkin and all things Fall. It may be all of the crazy fires in the area that are making me wish for rain. I know that in a couple of months I will be begging for sunshine and dreaming of summer.
One of the key signs of Fall is the kick-off of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Today we are sharing a Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Recipe. It is still warm out so this is the perfect combination of pumpkin to kick off fall and frappuccino to cool us off. The best of both worlds.
Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
Today is the day! Pumpkin Spice Latte's are back! This feels like the unofficial start to Fall every year.
Seeing the sign at our local Starbucks instantly has me thinking about all the pumpkin and apple cider recipes that we can make.
I am planning to make a ton of fall themed recipes this year including an Apple Cider Donut Cake, Apple cider margaritas, pumpkin spice everything, honestly I am so excited for the weather to cool down a bit so I can get back in the kitchen and start working on tons of new recipes.
